Saturday Sketches: Monster Art Battle continued

Codex here. So, a few Saturdays ago, I wrote about a game of illustrator prompts called Monster Art Battle.

    1. This is a perfect example of pareidolia. The same phenomenon is at play in a picture when light/shadow interaction looks like a ghost, a smear of Nutello on toast looks like Mohammad, a college student examines themselves in a mirror and sees a Two-Spirit, or a judge looks at a map and fails to see borders.
